I have been recently told that there was an 1806 Will left by Josiah Farmer, maybe even an Estate Record afterwards. I've looked through the Granville County Archives and have not found either mentioned.

I'm told this info came from: Abstracts of the Wills & Estate Records of Granville County, North Carolina 1746 - 1808. If there was another source, then they forgot to mention it.

Is there anyone with access to this abstract or to the Granville County Wills & Estate that can help me with this? I'm willing to pay for a copy of these two records within reason. Thanks!

Hi, I'm Looking for info on Elizabeth Paschal. She was listed on the 1850 Caswell Co., N. C. census with the family of William Dabbs and Mary. Her age was listed as 60 and place of birth Granville. Mary ann Paschal married Allen J. Dunaway on 05 Dec 1841 no further info on Allen Dunaway but Mary Dunaway married William J Dabbbs on 24 Sept 1847 in Caswell Co., N. C. Further Searching found Elizabeth, Sam'l H and Rebeca F. first children of William and Mary Dabbs were actually the children of Allen and Mary Dunaway since their names, on their marriage license, were shown as Dunaway and the first child of William and Mary was Lemuel M. Dabbs per his marriage license. This is all I know about the Paschal family. Anyone have a suggestion as to who Elizabeth Paschal married and what her maiden name might be. Thanks

Comments:
I noticed a Thomas Woodlief on your list and a Harriet Woodlief. Could this have been between 1845 and 1850?
There are a couple of possibilities. Thomas Woodlief of Granville County,N.C. early 1800's was the father to my g-g grandfather Devereaux J. Woodlief and Thomas C. Woodlief.
Devereaux was married to a Harriet Jane Reynolds and they had a daughter Harriet Modeste Woodlief. Harriet Jane died when Harriet Modeste was only 2 years old in 1845. Devereaux and Thomas could have taken Harriet Modeste to live with their family in N.C. or perhaps just for a visit.
which could have been for a year or so. I have been looking for Harriet Modeste after her mother died, until she married my g-grandfather, William August Driskill, in Grimes County,Tx. 1867. I did find a Henriette Woodlief in the Ursline Acadmey in New Orleans, La. in 1856. If you have any information I would appreciate hearing from you.

I would like to locate the Inscore families that lived in Cedar Creek, Granville Co., North Carolina. The 1860 census shows Mary Inscore with two Inscore children living with William and Eliza Ferrill/Ferrell. The Ferrill's had a son John Green Ferrell who shows up in the 1870 census Wake Co., North Carolina with Darling Inscore living with him. Darling, his brothers Joseph, Henry, Benjamin and Richard are all living in Hays Co., Texas in 1880 with Henry Benjamin and Richard being adopted by William and Eliza Ferrill. The Inscore children range in date of birth from 1858 to 1870 all in North Carolina. I do not know the husband Inscore of Mary Inscore but I am guessing that Mary maybe a Chapel as a Darlin Chapel is living one dwelling from her - possibly a brother. Also, Eliza Ferrill maybe a Chapel as well. Just a guess. Can anyone help with theses families. Thanks in Advance, Debbie Stewart, ddstew@flash.net

In the NC 1790 census there are two Tims men listed. Amos and Hollice Tims.
They were in the Hillsborough District, Granville County, NC, Knap of Leeds District. This is what the index book had.

Now I thought this was strange because Hollice Timms was listed in Chester SC.
So I decided to take a look at the actual census records for Granville County. Guess what? It wasn't on the census roll. I went back and looked at the index book and it stated that these names (Granville NC) were taken from Tax rolls.Did something happened to their census records for that year?
I would like any information that can help me with the Tims family.

Surnames Chapman/Chapmen - Allison
Comments:
i am looking for the parents, siblings and history of a Chapman/Chapmen family. The woman in question is Mary E. Chapman. The "e" is for Ellen, I think and the spelling of her last name could be Chapmen. She was born in TN 1828 but censuses state her parents born in NC. I have no info about her parents or siblings. She married Thomas Barnet Allison in 1851 and lived out her days in Bedford county TN until her death in 1904. She is buried in TN. Her husband has links to Granville County NC through Robert Allison, Scottish immigrant, married to Sarah Ogilvie (of Granville county NC).

Please contact me if you have any information on this family.

I mention Kizziah because I have a great Aunt named Kizziah (Kizzie) Taylor with a brother named Enoch and Andrew Taylor from the 1870 census. Kizziah was born in 1885 so I know it wasn't her or her brother Enoch that was mention but maybe their parent's name were Kizziah & Enoch.

Comments:
Found the below information about the will of William Bailey stating that William and Jeremiah Bailey are his heirs.

I am researching Philip Bailey b. 1760-1770 who is found in the 1818 Twiggs County, Ga. Tax Digest living next to William Bailey. The archivist at Ga. Archives who furnished with this the Tax Digest advised that she believes William and Philip were related.

Philip moved to Houston County, Ga. which adjoins Twiggs County in the late 1820's and to Randolph County, Ga. in the late 1830's.

In Randolph County Early Deeds I find, "Bryant Whitfield, William Bailey and Jeremiah Bailey to Richard Davis, etc. Jan. 10, 1834/July 12, 1834"

Philip had a daughter Lovecey (spelled several ways) who listed her place of birth as NC in two censuses. No record of Philip or Lovecey in NC I can find.

Wondering if the above William and Jeremiah could be the same as mentioned in William Bailey's will or in some way related to them.



Volume 21.-1859-1863



Pages 524, 525-July 20, 1861--proved February court 1862

Comments:
I have a question, hope someone can help. I am NEW to this sort of thing! I was looking at the Tax Lists for 1755, and I am confused about one thing.... what do the numbers mean beside a name? Like: John Doe, 1-0-1 ???

Also, do you happen to have any information about when the Bledsoe's first came to America?

I located a George Bledsoe born in 1630, in Bedforshire England (while doing an AOL search) and I think my relatives descended from him. Not sure tho.

I saw the names George, William, and Sarah Bledsoe on the 1755 tax list, and I am wondering if they are the children of William E. Bledsoe (born and died in VA) and his two wives, Anne (maiden name unknown) and Elizabeth Mumford.

I am trying to research my roots on my grandmothers side, but I keep running into brick walls and confusing myself even more! Can anyone help please???? Thanks.

Looking for information on the MITCHELL family who appear to have lived in Granville Co. NC before relocating to Weakley Co., TN sometime prior to 1825. The 1860 TN Census states that my G_Grandfather was born in Tennessee, his father in NC. My G-grandfather's name was Thomas J. Mitchell and he married Martha J. Jenkins in TN in 1856. Martha's father was Henry Jenkins who was born in NC.
The 1860 census shows Thomas as age 35 and born in TN. That would have been in 1825. I believe his father to have been born in NC. Any information, connection would be greatly appreciated.

I am seeking information on the Parish / Parrish family of the Granville county area. I am particularly interested in ELONOR PARISH who is shown on the 1800 Person county census. He is the only Parish listed on that census, so I am now checking surrounding counties. I was very excited to find what appears to be more than one family in Granville county.

Elonor Parish was born between 1770 and 1774 and married about 1790. In the 1800 census, he is listed with his wife as 26-45, one daughter (possibly named Sarah)10-16, and two sons (Wyatt/Wiott born about 1795 and Hewel/Huel born 1798). I believe that Elonor left NC and came to Dickson county, TN with his two oldest sons in 1814 (where the name is spelled Eleanor). I believe that he died in Pope county, AR (where his name was spelled Eliner) sometime between 1840 and 1850.

Any assistance in locating the siblings and parents of Elonor Parish or his wife's name and family is greatly appreciated.

I am seeking information on the Parish / Parrish family of the Granville and Person county area. In the 1800 census for Person county is listed "Elonor Parish". In 1800 he is listed as "Eleanor Parrish" as a witness on a deed in Person county. He shows up in Dickson county TN in 1814 with Huel and Wyatt Parrish and purchases land. They are then listed on the 1820 census. It is possible that he then moved on to Pope County, AR and is listed in the 1840 census there as "Eliner Parish".

Pleasant (Plesent) WEBB was born about ca 1760-1765. His son, Elias, said that his father, Pleasant was born in Ireland (not substantiated). He died between 1830 and 1840 in Ohio, USA. Around 1800 Pleasant and family came in to the Ohio valley from Rutherford County, North Carolina
. In 1803 (reported to be 45 years old) he was at the Licks in Scioto County, Ohio. Pleasant was in GreenupCounty, Kentucky in 1820 and in Lawrence County, Ohio in 1830. He did not appear in the 1840 census, so it is believed he died between 1830-1840. Pleasant (Plesent) WEBB and Unknown
had the following children: James WEBB (1786), Elias WEBB (1788), Thomas Hanley WEBB (1795), Aden WEBB (1797), Temperance WEBB (1799), William WEBB (1801), Margaret WEBB (1806), Sarah (Sally)WEBB (1809), and Baker WEBB (1811).

I am interested in any details which may be available as to the parentage, also marriage & children (if any) of Rev Daniel G Doak who I see was pastor of the Geneva Church, Granville, in 1837.
Not my direct line of Doaks, btw - that runs through the John Doak who may well have been Daniel G's grandfather - or perhaps even great-grandfather - and then at least three James Wilson Doaks ;-)

Several sources have stated that he moved to Henderson County, KY in 1810, but he does not appear on the Henderson Co., KY tax list until 1814. Are there tax records for Granville County available that could tell me when James Key was first in Granville County and when was the last year he was on the tax list there?

(3) Did he have a child named Michael, born about 1787-1789?

I have found "James Taylor" listings as follows: 1800 -- Roll M32_31, pg. 544; 1820 -- Roll M33_85, pg. 12. I understand the 1790 census of Granville is lost.

Do you have access to will and estate records for Oct 1796, when I am told that 'my' Hezekiah's will was probated? I am hoping his children are listed.... How can I get a copy of it?

Any other source you know of that straightens out the tres-Hezekiah fog would be helpful as well.

Father of Thomas J. Mitchell who was born after a move to
Weakley County, Tennessee, Both Matthew F and Thomas A
were married in Granville, NC.Matthew married Nancy Freeman in 1819, Thomas married Martha Buchannan in 1816. Their
sister Kissey Mitchell married Edward Atkinson in 1819. Any information on this particular Mitchell family would be
very much appreciated as I believe that Matthew F. Mitchell
was father to my G-Grandfather Thomas J. Mitchell of Weakley County, Tennessee.
Thank you for your time,
Dona from California

Surnames Bryant, Philpot
Comments:
I am tring to locate the parents of Thomas Philpot Bryant.

Birth: Sept, 23 1812, Granville County NC
Married: Ann Coleman Townsend October 8, 1835 (Person County? )
Died: Oct 2, 1874 in Kemper county MS.

My current theory is that his parents were:

Samuel Bryant
Birth: 1733, Granville NC
Married: Mary Philpot Aug 20, 1798 in Granville NC
Died: 1830 Granville NC.
Father: Samuel Bryant? (B: 1753 in Granville NC)

Mary Philpot Bryant
Birth: 1777 Granville NC
Died: Date Unknown in Graville NC

Thomas Philpot was either Mary Philpot Bryant's father or brother.
LDS lists him as her father but they have him born in 1773
while she was born in 1777. Hince I think he's a brother.

William Philpot (B:1740) and Milly Philpot (B:1744)
may have been Thomas and Mary Philpot's parents but I have
no proof of this.

Thomas Philpot Bryant and Ann Coleman Townsend Bryant
had moved to Greene County AL by at least 1837 because
thier first child (William Philpot Bryan) was born there.

Thomas and Ann Bryant moved to Sumpter County AL
and then to Kemper County MS by 1845 and both died there.

Anybody out there doing any research on the Bryant - Philpot
connection in Granville County NC? I'd be glad to swap
information and leads with anyone researching either line.
Any help is deeply appreciated because I'm really stumped.

Thanks,
Hugh Bryan

Hello, I am researching the Mitchell family who have the

Matthew F. Mitchell. Matthew who married a Nancy Freeman.
I suspect that Matthew and Thomas J. were brothers. The
Thomas A and Matthew were of the previous generation, Thomas A. being Father and Matthew perhaps their Uncle.
The naming is confusing to say the least, If you have a
THOMAS or MATTHEW MITCHELL any information or clues would
truly be appreciated.

I've recently learned, through a bio written several years ago by the descendants of one of John's grandsons, that the SIMMONS ancestors came from Oxford, Granville Co., N.C. Since John was said to have been born in Middle TN, I'm assuming that his family (father born in N.C., according to John's 1880 census data) came to TN prior to 1814. John SIMMONS had settled in Weakley Co., TN (West TN) between 1830 and 1840. Would appreciate any help in finding N.C. ancestors.

I am looking for a marriage for George Grissom, Sr born abt. 1839 died between 1870-1880. He was married to Martha Faucett(d/o John "Jackson" Faucett(e) and Martha Gillespie. We can not find a marriage for them. Also looking for help on Edwin Beale born, Va abt. 1795 possibly from the Southampton County, Va. There is a marriage 1829 between a Lydia Baisden and Edwin Beale. This could be them. Their son Josiah William Beale was born abt.1829.They are first found in Granville county NC in the 1830 census records. Need help documenting if this Lydia Baisden is our Lydia who married Edwin beale. I understand Lydia Baisden was a Johnson who married Samuel Baisden/Basden. Thanks for any help.

Interested in any info on the West Harris and Ethelred Harris families who moved to Edgecombe Co from Isle of Wight Co VA and later to Anson. They were in Bute and Halifax. They ended up in Montgomery Co. West Harris was supposed to be one of the commissioners negotiating with Edgecombe for the formation of Granville Co. The first court meeting in Granville Co was supposed to be in the home of one of his Jones cousins. His son Ethelred ended up in Bute at the Co division. Both signed the petition for the formation of Montgomery Co.I really need documented proof that Ethelred was son of West Harris and proof of Ethelred's wife or wives and children: Deeds , wills, Bible records, marriage records , Court records or any such documents pertaining to these people would be greatly appreciated.
